Singer-songwriter Charlie Faye and friends present a musical tribute to American musical icons, Carole King and James Taylor. Charlie, one of Austin's most accomplished and creative musicians, is joined by Lonnie Trevino, Jake Owen, Noëlle Hampton, and Wendy Colonna in performance during the show. (Charlie and even more Friends presented their second annual Tribute to Carole King and James Taylor, Friday, February 7, 2014, at the Cactus Café, a venerable acoustic venue in the University of Texas Student Union in Austin.)
Charlie Faye's latest release is "You Were Fine, You Weren't Even Lonely." Her 2010 album, "Travels with Charlie" -- recorded in 10 different cities over a 10-month period -- won critical acclaim and broke into the top 10 on the Americana Radio Chart. Charlie is also a noted music community organizer in Austin, especially around the issue of affordable housing. A front-page story in the Austin American-Statesman outlined Charlie's efforts to save a musicians' enclave of cottages in South Austin.
